    i am hoping to develop some android apps very soon. my dad is a software developer for IBM. he was on the front lines when java was new and has been working with java ever since. he has offered to help teach me java and we will be developing apps together. we have an idea for an app he wants to make but i am drawing a blank trying to think of other good ideas of what to make.

    so if anybody has any ideas, i'd like to hear them.

    Find out what sold well on iPhone that is not represented on Android. Go from there. Don't violate patents on anything (if they exist)

    I want something, preferably in widget form, that you can turn on that will automatically respond to texts and im messages if you are "away". Would also be nice to be able to change the message to whatever you wanted it to be

    Android needs an auto tune app like the iphone. I think it's called Sound like TPain or something. It was a hit for the iphone so I'm sure you could make some money off of it, but if you do make it remember who gave you the idea lol.

    anybody else have anything they want???

    i just went through and made the "flashlight app" that the online android tutorials walk you through. i tested it on the emulator and it's on my phone and works. :) so step one (of many, many steps) is done.

    Keyboard default based on orientation

    How about a small app that will allow you to set default different keyboards based on screen orientation:icon_ banana:

    Example: I LOVE Swype when I'm in portrait mode because of the one hand operation but when I'm in landscape mode I find the HTC keyboard more convenient.
